SDG 3 – Good Health & Well-Being

How does the ECOCA promote good health and well-being?

 

Air pollution causes more deaths than Malaria and Tuberculosis together. Burning solid biomass is a big factor contributing to this.

 

By reducing peoples’ exposure to smoke from burning firewood through the use of the ECOCA, they experience less pain in their eyes, throat and on the skin.

 

Furthermore, using the ECOCA saves around 7,25 hours of carrying heavy loads of firewood for long distances in hot weather, which further prevents from neck and back pain and other possible physical injuries.
